What causes gum bleeding? - Online Doctor Chats
My gums have recently started to Bleed (last 3 months). I use Colgate toothpaste. I smoke around 4-5 cigarettes a day since last 12 years. After I noticed the bleeding, i have started to brush twice daily.
I am Dr. XXXXXXX
I have read your query
or due to some infection in the gums
it happens daily while I brush my teeth.
You should take vitamin C
during the day.. it can happen if I try to suck at the base of the tooth.
Vitamin C you suggest..
and see if that helps
surely I would try that..
Yes, Vitamin C can cause bleeding from the gums
all citrus fruits such as lemon, orange are rich in vitamin C
you will also get tablets
i consume lemon juice / lime water daily...
Try Lymcee chewable tablets
then I doubt it is because of vitamin C
in which case the dentist will advice you further
would it be fine if I try the tablet, as you suggested for a week
to see how it is.
Along with that also do a blood test
Yes, it will be fine if your try the tablet for one week
but if you see no improvement then you should surely consult a dentist
hope that might not be related to it.
it is quite a common side effect of this drug
ahhhhhhh, i was on Sodium Valproate till 3 yrs back
You just said you are still on it
Encorate 800 is nothing but sodium valproate
I am now on Encorate Chrono
Encorate Chrono is just a brand name
technically I am not sure about the composition
it contains the same Sodium Valproate
in that case...since I am on Sod Valp. . what do you suggest
You should talk to your Neurologist
ok..I will consult him then
and see if he/she is okay with changing your medicine
I will do that then Dr.
thank you somuch for your time doc....
